Why join our club?
The aims of our Club are to provide fun and enjoyment on PWCs and to promote safe and responsible ownership and riding, regardless of members’ experience levels.
We have a Code of Conduct (see link below) that endorses these aims and respects the different levels of experience and expertise amongst our members. This means you can be confident coming to your first ride with us…you will be supported, buddied up if you like and looked after safety-wise on every event.
Our Club gives all members the chance to learn in a safe and supportive environment. It doesn’t matter whether you are a complete novice to PWC ownership and riding or want to upskill to tackle more advanced rides and opportunities. We have a lot of very experienced members who are still learning and challenging themselves, and are happy to share their knowledge and learnings.
Our members have the chance to see almost every accessible waterway in or coastline of Tasmania and the Committee is very keen to get suggestions for new rides.
All the planning and prep work is done for you. All you need to do is turn up with the requested gear and an insured ski in seaworthy condition.
At the ramp you will be assisted to launch and retrieve your ski (including reversing that damn trailer if needed).
You’ll pitch in when your ski is on its trailer, giving you more chance to see other skis and chat with other people.
Through Club activities you can develop or refine your trip planning and preparation skills, learn to maintain your ski, learn about safety and other topical issues, and move from cruising up and down the beach to longer tours or time trials if you want to.
Our newsletter and Facebook page allow you to keep in touch with others who have the same interests or enable you to organise an impromptu ride rather than go alone.
We plan events that specifically cater for families, such as St Helens’ Lagoon Day or Lake Barrington ride day, with opportunities for flinging around in a biscuit or on water skis; trialling a different ski altogether; or even having a go on a stand up jet ski from time to time. These are designed to include the kids and non-riders, as well as those who want to try something new on the water, out of sight of the general public.
Our Club can provide leadership opportunities if you want them, from planning and leading rides, to organising other types of events or even joining the Committee.
Our members can contribute to the community through public ride and charity fundraisers while doing something you love and getting huge reward from the smiles and joy on other people’s faces.
Thanks to a lot of hard work from those in the earlier years of the Club, we now have a strong voice. We are respected and supported by MAST; we are consulted about changes to legislation and regulations, and in turn, we have the opportunity to suggest changes to the regulator and government.
We have sponsors who are keen to assist the Club and its members. We have suppliers who will bend over backwards to get you back on the water if your ski has problems, or want to hear from us about what we want in our ski gear.
Not bad for a membership fee of $45 a year (or $60 for families).
